As Mark Zuckerberg Blasts TikTok, Instagram Is Testing A Copycat Product, ‘Reels’, In Brazil

Instagram, which successfully pilfered the Snapchat Stories format, is hoping for a similar coup with the highly-edited music video, meme, and challenge video medium proliferating on the platform du jour, TikTok. Instagram is launching a new featured dubbed Reels that enables users to create 15-second video clips set to music, Techcrunch reports. The test, on iOS and Android, is rolling out exclusively in Brazil, where the new product is dubbed Cenas. Users can share Reels to their Stories, though the clips also have the potential of going viral within a new section of Instagram’s Explore tab dubbed Top Reels. Reels can be set to a large catalog of popular music — thanks to parent company Facebook’s licensing deals with major record labels and indie publishers — or borrowed from other users’ videos. New Reels editing features at launch include timed captions and a ghost overlay for lining up transitions. Techcrunch notes that Stories might not be a natural home for TikTok-like content, given that Stories are more spontaneous and autobiographical, whereas TikToks are highly-edited and typically serve to convey a narrative, meme or joke. That said, the fact that Instagram is choos...

The United Kingdom Department for Transport has embarked on a world-leading infrastructure project. By the 2030s,

The United Kingdom Department for Transport has embarked on a world-leading infrastructure project. By the 2030s, London will connect to Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester via a new rail line with 18 trains per hour traveling at speeds up to 225 mph. The line, High Speed 2 (HS2), builds upon the more-than 15-year success of HS1, which carries 20 million passengers per year through the Channel Tunnel between the U.K. and Continental Europe. HS2 promises to drive economic growth, redistribute opportunity to the north of England, and support towns and cities across the U.K. It will cut the travel time from London to many northern cities by nearly half while moving people and goods in a way that’s efficient and eco-friendly. A project of this complexity and scope requires new levels of planning and design. It requires the integration of two key technologies: Building Information Modeling (BIM) and a geographic information system (GIS). I work with the Skanska-Costain-STRABAG Joint Venture (SCS JV), the group responsible for the London portion of HS2 construction. In building the rail line from the center of London to northern parts of the city, the densely populated environment makes ...

If you opt for ‘original’ ink from Brother, Canon, HP or Epson – just as 4,710 of the 8,481 Which? members we surveyed do – buying printer ink can be incredibly expensive. In fact, it can cost you up to £78 more when you come to restock your printer compared with going for cheaper, third-party alternatives. We asked real customers to rate the best printer ink brands – and the top five, based on customer score, were all compatible ink suppliers. So there’s no need to pay over the odds when buying printer ink. They call oil ‘black gold’, but the phrase could perhaps be better applied to original-branded printer ink. While Brent crude oil sells for $0.40 (32p) a litre (price correct at 18 July 2019), the same quantity of original printer ink could set you back as much as £1,890. For that cost, you could buy more than 5,906 litres of oil, enough to make roughly 750 gallons of petrol. That’s sufficient fuel to travel 30,000 miles, three quarter of the way around th...

Sydney attacker who slashed sex-worker‘s throat before being tackled by hero Brits

A school photo taken of Mert Nay in Year 8 shows the otherwise ‘lonely and weird‘ teenager smiling in his Blacktown Boys High School uniform But Mert Ney, now 21, grew up and allegedly murdered a sex worker and stabbed another woman during a six-minute rampage that has sent shockwaves across Australia. Ney was arrested at about 2pm on Tuesday after he was tackled by heroic witnesses who used chairs and milk crates to pin him down in Sydney city centre. Brave British bystanders Lee Cuthbert, Paul O‘Shaughnessy and Luke O‘Shaughnessy, all from Manchester, restrained the man until police arrived. Those scenes were a far cry from a school photo taken of him in Year 8, showing the teenager smiling in his Blacktown Boys High School uniform. Ney, who grew up in Marayong, west Sydney, is the middle of three siblings and the son of Turkish-Cypriot parents. ‘He was not much of a talker,‘ said Reen Elomari, who went to primary school with him. He always used to walk fast, not many friends, never used to say anything. ‘I always used to see him roam around the streets alone. I would see him around my house. I‘d see him maybe a couple of times [at the shops], just alone.‘  Mert Ney, 21, (pict...

Against the flow for increased competitiveness logo-pn-color logo-pn-color

The vehicle interior of the future will make drivers feel even more at home and will fulfil the individual preferences of the vehicle owner. Operating elements will disappear under high-quality surfaces and control will be even more intuitive. The way to move forward – Faurecia is working intensively on this topic and is meeting the challenge of combining aesthetics and functionality with efficiency and cost effectiveness. The Peine plant near Hanover in Germany, for example, has focused on multi-component injection moulding processes. It is part of the Interiors division with a total of 81 production sites in 24 countries. The interior of the Audi Q8 is functional and at the same time elegant; pointing the way to the future. “Audi is particularly design-oriented,” says Jochen Klos, Injection Moulding Manager at Faurecia Innenraumsysteme GmbH, headquartered in Hagenbach, southwest Germany, describing an especially demanding customer. Six interior parts are produced for the SUV Coupé at the Peine production plant. The centre console clearly illustrates the high quality requirements. In order to be competitive, Faurecia, in collaboration with its injection moulding mac...

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free Mobile, dont la part de marché au 3e trimestre atteint 11% avec 7,435 millions d’abonnés. Le groupe Iliad, maison-mère de Free, se porte toujours aussi bien. Au 3e trimestre, son chiffre d’affaires a atteint 944,2 millions d’euros, soit une hausse d’un peu plus de 15% sur un an. Sur les 9 premiers mois de 2013, la croissance de l’opérateur est de 22,5% à 2,7 milliards d’euros de CA. C’est dans le secteur de la téléphonie mobile que la croissance est la plus forte au dernier trimestre (+34,7%), avec 321 millions de chiffre d’affaires dégagés. Free Mobile ne communique en revanche pas sur sa rentabilité. En termes de conquête, le 4e opérateur mobile a attiré 640.000 nouveaux abonnés, portant le parc total de clients de Free Mobile à 7,435 millions. Cela représente 11% de part de marché. « Le Groupe a accéléré sa conquête d’abonnés sur les utilisateurs ayant une consommation modérée (forfait mobile à 2€/mois) » commente Iliad. Mais si Free a continué de gagner massivement des clients, Reuters précise néanmoins qu’il s’agit du « nombre de conquêtes d’abonnés le plus faible depu...

Heal The Gut: 17 Gut-Healing Strategies to Start Today

Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives? Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives? Our gut health influences everything from our weight, to our mood, to our cognitive ability. It can be the reason for our back pain, the root of our depression, and of course, the cause of our digestive issues. That’s why testing the health of our gut and then healing our gut is absolutely essential for improving our mental and physical health. I never thought much about my gut. I’m a psychologist and well-being expert, so I focus mostly on what you can do to boost well-being (take my well-being quiz). But this all changed when my gut completely gave out on me. In the blink of an eye, I started getting nauseous, bloated, and belchy anytime I ate anything. I quickly dropped 15 pounds, became exhausted, and developed intense anxiety. Had I thought more about my gut health, I could have seen the signs and prevented this nightmare. My gut had been screaming, “Pay attention t...

by Manoli Katakis November 20, 2019, 8:30 am inAftermarket, Aftermarket Companies, Chevrolet, Featured, GM, GM Platforms, GMC, Hennessey, Muscle Trucks, News, Pickup Trucks, Sierra, Silverado, T1XX The 2019 SEMA Show may have come and gone, but Hennessey Performance Engineering is still making announcements. Yesterday evening, the company announced a pair of supercharger packages for the T1 2019-2020 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks – a feat that’s so far gone unaccomplished. The first package, the Goliath 700 package, produces 700 hp and 711 lb-ft of torque. The second, the Goliath 800 package, utilizes a 6.8L V8 of some kind, producing 805 hp and 812 lb-ft. That’s even more than the V8 F-150 Raptor conversion that Hennessey offers (758 hp), so that’s score one for the GM truck enthusiasts. Important details for these Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, such as price, and which engine Hennessey specifically bolted a supercharger onto, are not immediately available. The available photos also appear to be renderings. But even so, there’s plenty of performance specs that HPE has disclosed. Goliath 700 Package: • 2.9 Liter Supercharger System • Hi...
